Important Queen Anne Chinoiserie Corner Cupboard by John Coxed, Sold To An Important Private European Collection…

Six pieces of furniture bearing John Coxed’s labels have so far come to light, and they bear two different styles of label to which this is thought to be the earliest version. This corner cabinet is not only one, of the only now three known examples of the earliest form, but also the only recorded Japanned and chinoiserie piece by John Coxed (1711-1718). It is assumed that this label dates from 1711-1715 and the later version’ from 1715-18. This allows us the rare opportunity to accurately date this unique piece, to sometime between 1711-15.
